Organisations hosting an ADRIA Intern are participating as Task Partners chosen through an open call. The key requirements are the following:

  1. Task Partner is registered as a private or public legal entity in one of the ADRIA region countries or Italy.
  2. Task Partner is registered for economic, educational, research and/or other activities primarily in the following sectors: mining, geo-sciences, environmental engineering, waste management and metallurgy. However, other sectors will also be considered (case-by-case) if there is a strong and evident connection of the activities regularly carried out by the legal entity and the objectives of the project (Internship).
  3. Task Partner is willing and able to carry out all actions and tasks described in the 2021 Call for applications.

If you represent an organisation…

…admitting an intern could be a multifaceted benefit for your research or business, introducing a fresh perspective of future young professionals eager to learn and grow. The students will be matched with your organisation based on their competences and your needs, maximizing the positive impacts for both parties involved. The supervision provided to the students within your organisation will also be awarded by a one-time compensation of 500 Euro!


Internship FAQS

What are the impressions of former ADRIA Interns

This programme is excellent for the students. I recommend a continuation of the program to cover some of the methods in more detail. Halim Prcanović, a Supervisor from the Institute Kemal Kapetanović

Although it was short, I can say that through this Internship I gained a lot of knowledge and had an opportunity to work in a prestigious research institution in my city. I really like the concept of this project because it allows practical learning for students, which is essential for the future employment opportunities.

Tarik Kurtiši, an Intern

The ADRIA Internship program is a great opportunity to gain new work experience and develop work skills and habits. It’s interesting to learn through practice from people who have been in business for a long time and are able to get us through the work assignments, so we really do learn something. Also, through this program, we get to know people who may be of use to us in our future careers. Students have the opportunity to apply the theory in practice and develop communication skills, rational thinking at the moment of action, and develop a sense of teamwork and responsibility towards the work tasks.

Mirsada Bušatlić, an Intern

This Internship has meant a lot to me and has brought me many positive things. Great experience and a huge step in my further professional career. I would recommend the students to sign up!

Bogdana Milenković, an Intern

For me, internship was a once in a lifetime positive experience and I would recommend it to all students. First hand experience and feeling the work on a real job market with adequate mentorship is a great way to finish graduate studies. An excellent kickoff to start your career and to improve professional development.
